I’ve already said Park Shin Hye won the actress lottery of her generation since she’s had the pleasure of working with pretty much every single gorgeous and/or talented young male actor in Korea. And then some. She’s even worked with current It-boy du jour in Taiwan George Hu. After The Heirs with Lee Min Ho drops this Fall, she’ll be so far ahead of the curve no other young actress can boast of nearly the stable of co-stars in dramas, movies, and CFs that she’s collaborated with. To this mix comes slightly older Yoon Kye Sang, himself still possessed of the boyish charm and smolder. Let’s not forget he was an idol boy himself once, a member of the pop group G.O.D. and worked hard to shed the idol actor image once he transitioned to acting. I’ve liked him since She is Nineteen and Who Are You, but it was in Best Love that he really became a mature manly actor for me instead of a young man on the cusp of full adulthood. Park Shin Hye and Yoon Kye Sang became the latest spokes couple for sportswear brand Kolon Sports (Lee Seung Gi and Lee Min Jung were former models for this brand) and the company is being clever in trying to create their own content for PPL. Instead of inserting their products into dramas (such a hilariously in The King 2 Hearts when Lee Seung Gi’s King Lee Jae Ha set up a camping picnic for Ha Ji Won’s Kim Hang Ah on the grounds of the Palace), the company hired famed director Kim Ji Woon to produce a mini-movie called One Perfect Day (Korean title Rock Paper Scissors for Love). Those of you unfamiliar with Kim Ji Woon, he’s known for gritty and eclectic big-budget fare such as The Good, The Bad, The Weird and I Saw the Devil. This mini-movie is actually the second part of a series bankrolled by Kolon Sport, the first being a mini-movie directed by Park Chan Wook starring his muse Song Kang Ho called Day Trip. LOL whut, did those two make this mini-movie in between smoke breaks while doing Snowpiercer? Back to One Perfect Day, the story surrounds a romantically inept guy played by Yoon Kye Sang who goes on a blind date with Park Soo Jin that goes horribly awry, before meeting his true match in Park Shin Hye. The two leads posed for a series of fun and cool magazines spreads in connection with promoting this piece so check out the pics below and then watch the entire mini-movie with English subs.
